Biomass Volume Calculation in Industrial Heating Systems with 2D/3D Profile Sensor

Volumetric flow measurements of the biomass are carried out to optimize the efficiency of industrial biomass heating systems during the ongoing process. The calculation of the volume can be used to draw conclusions about the energy quality of wood chips or rice husks, for example, and thus optimize the energy efficiency of the boiler. A 2D/3D profile sensor is installed above the conveyor line for this purpose, which generates a 2D height profile of the biomass. Together with the belt speed, the volume can be calculated using 3D software.

2D/3D Profile Sensors

Sensors of this type measure profiles of objects such as weld seams or glue beads and check roundness or gaps using laser triangulation. Red or blue laser light, open interfaces and various performance classes are available.
